Orange Blossoms: Week #2

Hello Quilty Friends!

So many of you speedy quilters have all (13) of your ORANGE BLOCKS completed!! I am loving the photos on facebook and instagram. Keep on sharing em! It is so nice to see all of the enthusiasm around this summertime project as we work on it together. I am really looking forward to enjoying this quilt under an orange tree… appropriate and thematic, don’t you think?

This morning, those of you who purchased the kit, have been sent your PATTERN EMAIL a few minutes ago so it should be arriving in your inbox soon.

For those of you have jumped in with us since then, the WEEK #2 PATTERN will be available tomorrow IN THE SHOP before noon for everyone else.

I can’t quite share this weeks blocks yet, as it is still a mystery until tomorrow… but here are last week’s blocks :-).

THIS IS HOW THE SEW ALONG WILL WORK

  • Each week for 3 weeks, we will release a portion of the project. Last week we started with Week #1: THE ORANGE BLOCK and are continuing this week with BLOCK #2. If you keep up during the three weeks, you will have a finished orange themed summer patchwork once you are done. It will be app. 63″ square.
  • Each week we will post here on TUESDAY with some pics of the next section and any other info you might need or want for that week.
  • We will be working along with the Sew Along in our FACEBOOK GROUP, FIG TREE QUILTS FRIENDS. People will share their progress, pics of their cutting and piecing, etc. Its a great place to be a community! But don’t worry if you are not on Facebook, that’s okay, social media is not for everyone so don’t feel bad. It is just a fun place for us to cheer each other on and see how everyone is progressing. You will be able to get your info here and the patterns in the shop each week.
  • Each Tuesday [the day after the release], the pattern for that week’s blocks will become available for purchase in our shop. Anyone can participate at that point.
  • The patterns will be available for purchase throughout April and May.
  • We will be using the hashtag #orangeblossomsquilt if you want to follow along.

FOR THOSE WHO PURCHASED THE FULL ORANGE BLOSSOMS KIT

  • Your “entrance” to this 3 week sew along comes with the kit. Welcome! You will be getting an email with the pattern sometime before noon today… assuming the internet cooperates and your system likes ours! If you have ever opted out of our weekly email newsletter… you will need to opt back in because that is how the email will be sent to you.
  • You will get a similar email next Monday and the Monday after that for all 3 installments of the pattern.
  • Your patterns will be free of charge… a perk of purchasing the kit!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO PURCHASED ONE OF THE CREAM OR GREEN STARTER BUNDLES OR ARE WORKING WITH YOUR STASH

  • Welcome to you as well, we are so very glad you are joining us! Each Tuesday, the day after those who purchased the kit have received their pattern via email, the pattern for that week will become available in our FIG TREE SHOP HERE for purchase. THE FIRST PATTERN IS NOW AVAILABLE.
  • The pattern will be on our FEATURED PAGE. If for whatever reason you are unable to locate it, simply search in the search bar for Orange Blossoms and it will come up for you.
  • You will need to purchase the pattern parts, each week for 3 weeks, each Tuesday, in order to complete the quilt.
  • The pattern will only come in a downloadable PDF version. So sorry that we will not be able to offer paper patterns of this project at this time.

See you next week for the THIRD installment!
